To enable chroot for users you have to chmod u+s /bin/chroot The chroot will succeed and you will be as your user and not as root. It is up to you to judge if it is something you want or not. If you have a single user machine that does not have daemons running in a chroot environment it might be ok. For example on my laptop (single user) I have chroot with: owner: root group: wheel permissions: -rws--x--- That way only people in the group wheel can execute it. -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
